What are your views on financial aid?
When I went to college I did not qualify for any financial aid. All I received from the government was about $2,000 per semester in a low-interest loan. This was pretty much usless seeing as how I paid close to $20,000 to go to school per year.
The reason I did not qualify for financial aid is because my parents assets are too high.
well, okay -
But what does that have to do with me? My parents did not pay a dime for my college education. Now I have about $50,000 in student loans to pay back.
How am I any less qualified for a considerable amount of financial aid than those who are the actual recipients?
Seems unfair that just because my parents make money that I (not my parents) get stuck with a larger tuition bill than those students who have parents who do not make as much money.
